Thank you to Mark Maloy and the rest f the Emerging Revolutionary War Revelry team for the opportunity to discuss William Hunter!
Emerging Revolutionary War Era
Join us on Sunday, January 22 at 7 p.m. on our Facebook page as we welcome author Gene Procknow to discuss his new book: “William Hunter – Finding Free Speech: A British Soldier’s Son Who Became an Early American.” During the American Revolution, Hunter accompanied his father on a campaign to fight the American Rebels. Witnessing first-hand the terrors of combat and twice experiencing capture, Hunter wrote the only surviving account written by a child of a British soldier during the American Revolution. Previously unknown, the journal is one of the most important document discoveries in recent years. He later became a prominent newspaper editor and representative. Join us as we learn more about this fascinating story from early American history.
Can’t make it this Sunday? You can see a recorded version on our YouTube page or on our podcast!
